“This ain’t no sittin’ around cryin in your beer blues band”, insists front-man/lead vocalist, Blind Lemon Peel. “We’re a kick-a**, funky, get up and shake your love thang, boogie-woogie blues machine”. Blind Lemon Peel All-Stars have recently headlined some of the top blues rooms in L.A., including Harvelle’s, Catalina Jazz Club, and The Mint. The sextet consists of the aforementioned Blind Lemon Peel, self-described as “an old black man trapped in an ever older white man’s body”, a brawny-voiced blues shouter in the same tradition as his heroes, Big Joe Turner and Howlin’ Wolf. Bassist Ray Brundidge toured for eight years with the legendary James Brown and, says Peel, “is the glue that holds it all together. He puts the bass in its place and the jump start in your soul.”  Renowned drummer Craig Kimbrough “brews up his own blend of magic while keeping the beat with his fatback grooves”, asserts Peel. Kimbrough has played with greats including Solomon Burke, Swamp Dogg, Jimmy McCracken, and Lowell Fulson, to name a few. Lead guitarist D.J. Ison is “the masters of guitar stylings – some Stevie Ray Vaughn here, a little Billy Gibbons there, a pinch of BB King for spicin’ and a whole lotta his bad old self all over the place”, explains Peel. “You never heard nuthin’ like D.J. before; doubt you ever will again”. Regarding vocalist Alyssa Baron, Peel says, “this little fireball brings the stage to life, embodying influences such as Etta James and Janis Joplin. Don’t let her size fool you – she may be petite, but her voice is like a hard right jab to your solar plexus.”
